Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 picture

Other mistake: In both the books and the movies, Harry's Invisibility Cloak can always be seen until it is worn. In Diagon Alley, just before the Gringott's break-in, Ron pulls out the cloak to cover Harry and Griphook, but it turns invisible before he puts it on them. Ron merely mimes the motion of covering them.

Elf (2003)

Elf picture

Other mistake: When Buddy's brother is reading Santa's list he reads the newscaster's wish he looks and mutters something about letters meaning they were in alphabetical order. However when he is saying random names he does not turn the page and the names are not in alphabetical order. (01:23:00)

Suggested correction: After he says each name, it cuts to that person and their reaction. Most of which was done without going back to Michael. Therefore, we can't say he didn't turn the pages.

Tooth Fairy picture

Other mistake: In a hockey game, Derek Thompson slams an opposing player into the wall and knocks out a tooth. Inexplicably, the tooth shoots straight up into the air and there is absolutely no blood on the tooth or around the player's mouth.

Doctor Strange picture

Other mistake: When Dr. Strange rushes a patient to brain surgery they show him and Dr. Christine Palmer operating without surgical masks. When they cut away and come back they're wearing masks. Also, Dr. Palmer is an ER doctor, and her assisting him would never happen in real life.

Fantasia picture

Other mistake: In the intro to the Pastoral Symphony, the narrator identifies the deity who cloaks the world with Night to be Morpheus, who is the Greek god of sleep and dreams. However, the character in the animation is fairly obviously female, with long hair, eye shadow, and lipstick. My theory is that the character was intended by the art team to be Nyx, the Greek goddess of Night. Night would be a more likely candidate to be making it nighttime across the world, while Morpheus would be more likely to put people to sleep or send them dreams.

Suggested correction: Without further evidence/proof, this theory remains just that. A theory.

The Wizard of Oz picture

Other mistake: When entering the Haunted Forest, the Scarecrow is carrying a pistol and a stick, the Lion has a bug sprayer and net, the Tin Man has a monkey wrench and his axe. But different scenes after that shows some items missing and then returning. I guess in the "Jitterbug" scene that was cut, they lost all those things but the axe. (01:13:15 - 01:16:00)
